orchestra seats

By

Definition:

Orchestra seats are the seats on the first floor of a theater; typically the best and most expensive seats at a theatrical performance. If a theater has three sections in the orchestra seating area, tickets usually indicated "right," "left," or "center" orchestra.

Should not be confused with the orchestra pit where muscians play, or with muscians themselves.
